## Intermediate Algebra (6th Edition)

The equation y=f(x), read as "y equals f of x," tells us that x is a function of y. In this case, we can input a value of x into the function to find its corresponding y-value. We know that $f(-5)=-10$, so the x-value of -5 corresponds to the y-value of -10. So, the corresponding ordered pair is (-5,-10).
